This video released last week features Dave Westlake saying he learned to "shoot a gun before learning how to ride a bike," "children going to hunter's safety classes have been demonized," and finally "our Second Amendment rights have been eroded." Westlake then rapidly fires seven rounds from a pistol before eying up the camera.Except Russ Feingold is just a bit ahead of Westlake's curve. So where is Dave Westlake's U.S. Supreme Court amicus brief and what, exactly, is the point of his "blaze orange" campaign?
Maybe Dave Westlake would be better off defending warrantless wiretaps on Fourth Amendment grounds, or detailing how money is speech and corporations are persons for First Amendment purposes.
Because if the Second Amendment is Dave Westlake's signature issue, then he should probably vote for Russ Feingold himself.
